DWI/DUI (Drunk Driving) First Offense

A person commits the standard offense of DWI/DUI (Drunk Driving) if he operates a motor vehicle, on a way (generally speaking, a road or commercial parking lot), while under the influence of an intoxicating liquor or while having an alcohol concentration of .08 or more.  “Under the influence” means that person is impaired by that intoxicating liquor to any degree.

A person charged with a first offense for a standard DWI/DUI (Drunk Driving) faces a class B misdemeanor crime, fined not less than $500.00 (excluding any penalty assessment), and be required to furnish proof of a treatment program before being allowed to get his license back.  For a standard first offense for a DWI/DUI (Drunk Driving), the treatment program is described as an impaired driver intervention program (I.D.I.P.).  The person will also be eligible to lose his license from 9 months to two (2) years.

It is important to note that all penalties for DWI/DUI (Drunk Driving) are increased if the driver is under 21 years of age.
